“Coach Maddie and the Marine” by Blaire Edens is Maddie Westerfield and Lieutenant David Sterling’s story.
Maddie Westerfield’s husband was a Marine and died in combat eight years ago. She is a grief counselor so that she can help other people going through lose like she did. I think that she is hiding from facing her lose by helping others deal with their grief. Maddie has not made time for dating during this time, plus she has been a caregiver for her eight year old nephew for her deployed sister.
Lieutenant David Sterling felt guilty for the past eight years after losing one of his men, which happen to be Maddie’s husband. Lieutenant David thinks that he doesn’t deserve happiness. Circumstances put Maddie and Lieutenant David together. They were both attracted to each from the start. But will they allow their grief and guilt to prevent them from having a chance at love?
This was a sweet story, despite dealing with grief and guilt. This does have a happy ending, but it wasn’t an easy road getting there.
I have received a copy of this book from NetGalley/Entangled Publishing, for an honest review.
